Yesterday, I had a call with my writing mentor.
He was SO impressed with the numbers for Book 1 that he advised me to release Book 2 ...
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
I was stunned!
But the numbers don't lie. Readers are responding to Montrose Paranormal Academy, Book 1 in a big way!
All it took was some major updates, a new title, and a new cover ...
Plus a brand new marketing strategy. (Which I'm still learning.)
If you've been a long time Nexis fan, you know that I released the first version of Book 2 back in November as Crossing Nexis. Don't worry, I'll keep that as the book's subtitle.
Luckily, I already sent Book 2 to my editor to review the updates I added for this relaunch.
The next two weeks will be a little crazy as I update Book 2, design the cover, and put the new book up for pre-order.
Unfortunately, that means Book 3 will have to be pushed aside for a week or two.
But I hope you'll agree that in the end, it'll all be worth it!
Honestly guys, my head is spinning right now. I'm still trying to figure out pre-order and release dates.
Right now, I have a TON of work to do to get everything ready in time.
My mentor warned me about this.
He said if Book 1 was uber successful, then I'd need to release Book 2 right away.
I just never thought it'd really happen!
Underneath the shock and awe, I'm ecstatic right now. And SO VERY GRATEFUL for all of your support.
Over the next few weeks, stay tuned for the Book 2 cover reveal, pre-order announcement and release dates.
Who can't wait for the next book? Comment below and tell me all about it.
Barbara Hartzler is the debut author of The Nexis Secret—the story a girl with a gift to see the unseen world of angels. And the two secret societies vying for The Seer's allegiance. The Nexis Secret is inspired by Barbara’s college experiences and peppered with anecdotes from her teen missions trip to New York City. She’s always wanted to write, not necessarily about angels, but the idea was too good to pass up. As a former barista and graphic designer, she loves all things sparkly and purple and is always jonesing for a good cup of joe.
